Whisky Reviews for Tomatin 1976 DD
14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.30 points
- There we talk. Nice basket of exotic fruits, then mandarin, peach, apricot, pink grapefruit, honey, vanilla. In the blind I might have bet on a bourbon cask. On the palate it's perfect, the exoticism is superb, the spices, cinnamon in the head, bring the right amount of wood to structure the whole. Too bad the final is not longer !!
- Complex old fruit bomb Tomatin.
Yellow fruits, caramel, spicy oak, menthol, sherry and vanilla.
Mixed fruit jam, sherry, caramel, honey, matured oak and pepper.
Long, fruity, spicy.
- One of the most beautiful Tomatin 1976 that I have tasted.
From the first nose: Sublime.
Yellow fruits, camphor, peppers (black, white), apricot confit, peach. Slight medicinal touch.
Very big aromatic intensity and a lot of pleasure.
On the palate it is round, fruity and balanced.
We stay on the same fruits as the nose, always mixed perfectly and jammy. The medicinal and pepper are there to support the fruit.
Very long. Exoticism reveals itself completely and explodes. Mandarin, lemon, and always yellow fruits. Always camphor to the end.
- Nose chocolate, caramel, almonds, praline, classic enough for a sherry but nothing heavy, the whole remains fresh. The palate is well fruity (ripe exotic fruit and melted), with a note of Elderberry / blackcurrant quite clear that amplifies in the long finish. A slight dilution brings out a touch of menthol / eucalyptus and citrus (mandarin?). Very good dram.
- zero defects, excellent
Extremely fruity, but more sherry than other tomatos 76
equal to the nose
- From Whiskyfun:
Tomatin 34 yo 1976/2010 (51%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams, sherry butt) Colour: full gold. Nose: it’s one of these fresh and fruity old Tomatins! Not as much a fruitbomb as some 1960s distillation but still, it’s very fruity. Passion fruits, guavas, mangos, green bananas, kiwis, then more herbal tones (verbena, spearmint, dill, fennel) and then some soft spicy touches, caraway and juniper berries among others. And some funny and unexpected hints of oysters. Am I dreaming? With water: same, not much changes. Mouth (neat): tons of jams, hectolitres of fruit syrups (and fresh fruit juices) and myriads of tiny spicy notes. Quality is very high here as there’s not one single sign of overageing. We’re somewhere between a 1972 Clynelish and a 1981 Lochside. Okay, okay, tangerines, passion fruits, mangos, lemons, vanilla, coconut (just a little…), cinnamon… With water: again, same despite an oakiness that’s just a tiny-wee tad louder (for the record). Finish: medium long, very fruity, very clean, tropical… Comments: a textbook old Tomatin, exactly the style that pushed the distillery to the front of the stage within maniacal circles. It’s also a bit of a miracle as, according to my experience, the big yet delicate fruitiness tends to get killed as soon as there’s a little too much oak in these old Tomatins. Which isn’t the case here, obviously.SGP:751 - 92 points.
- A very good whisky, quite complex while being quite fine too.
A very fine and very delicate nose on yellow fruits and mandarin, a little wax, a pinch of vanilla. Sherry is not invasive.
It smells great, must say what is.
A lot of pepper, a minty note. Sweet marmalade fruit .; and a little vanilla.
The finish is quite long, again on white pepper. The wood is a little felt here, without being imposing so far. A little mint; and still some fruits.
- A great Tomatin, there are few whiskies as fruity. A rare treat indeed that is sadly almost gone.
Woody and fruity. First come cinnamon and ripe kiwis, a very sweet smell. After that come soft vanilla, papaya, and mandarins.
A very busy and complex nose!
Sweet arrival with a slightly wood-bitter development. Thick and chewy, but not at all oily - rather drying with small tanins.
The taste is more dominated by the wood, resembles some old burbons or ryes, with a citrucy and tropical fruit freshness to balance it a little.
Medium length, sweet, and more similar to the nose with the fruits comming back - mostly with dried papayas and figs.
Almost no bitterness in the finish, which makes it a dram from which you always want to take another sip.
- Note sure why I like this so much but the woodines is just so tasty I`m not sure if I`ve ever tasted such a whisky before. It reminds me of some chinese dishes prepared with dried chili`s and coriander. I call this whisky `1000 dishes in a Dram.`
Slightly floral, a little minty and peppery side, and little vanilla and beeswax and then a lot of fruit (apricots, clementines, mangos) in a nice melted set! Very nice nose. Gentle despite more than 50 °. With a few drops of water, we find the same fruits with a little lemon and peaches. Wow
Very spicy, always the same pepper-mint pair, wax, then we return to the exotic fruits (mangoes) and apricot jam. It is very greedy.
Long enough on the fruit and extinguished on the beeswax!
